|The SmartPost® System distributed by Advanced Solutions includes a POSTSAVER® boot, uplift restraint notch (POSTSAVER® USA Patent Pending) and structural lumber post.
The advanced technology of POSTSAVER® provides lumber posts with superior protection. The vulnerable area of the post is shrink-wrapped with a heavy-duty polyethylene boot coated on the inside with bitumen. The heat-shrinking process liquifies the bitumen and drives it into the wood. This provides a secondary moisture-resistant layer. The polyethylene outer layer provides the tough physical barrier.
While the POSTSAVER® boot significantly increases the service life of posts, the uplift restraint notch provides superior resistance to wind uplift. SmartPost® is also lighter and easier to install without any special anchors.
These and other advantages make SmartPost® the smart choice when considering in-ground post applications.
